The European Research Council has awarded a ERC Starting Grants to Monique van der Veen. The grant (1,5 million euros for a five year programme) is intended to support scientists who are in the early stages of their career and have already produced excellent supervised work. The aim of the research is the rational design of metal-organic frameworks as ferroelectrics and to harvest mechanical energy from the environment. Ultimately these materials might be used as physically flexible memories and energy source of implantable devices and environmental sensors.
